  • Appearance: Bright and clear, it has deep ruby color, with garnet rims and legs.
    Nose: Clean, with medium intensity aromas of black fruit such as plum and blackberry, with some cassis, oak notes of cedar and smoke, pungent spice of licorice, dairy notes of cream, maturity notes of tobacco and savory, with a little herbaceous note of green bell pepper. The wine is developing.
    Palate: Dry with medium (+) acidity, the wine has medium (+) tannin of ripe and silky texture, showing medium alcohol and medium (+) body, with medium (+) intensity flavors of black fruit such as blackcurrant, blackberry and plum, oak notes of cedar and some vanilla, pungent spice of licorice, animal notes of leather. The wine has a medium (+) finish.
    Conclusion: Good quality Margaux with good structure and highlighting the typicity of what a nice Margaux should taste like, on the nose it is showing quite a complex range of aromas, with nice intensity. On the palate it shows similar range of flavors, with good acidity and tannin, but having even a higher concentrated flavors mean it could still be further developed for another 3-5 years easily, but already good to drink now.

  • Decanted at private wine tasting party. Muted nose, muted flavors, heavy tannins, this wine appears closed at this point. Not much change after one hour or so. Excellent structure. Keep deep in your cellar for 4-5+ years.

  • Very acidic. Needs time.

  • Bought in 2009 and kept at 12 degrees Celsius in my wine fridge. On first decanting this was completely closed, with absolutely nothing on the nose, and an acidic and tannic taste. After 4 hours it opened considerably and became more balanced with cherry fruits and leather. I enjoyed it but it didn't knock me over. Probably needs at least another year in the cellar.
